Low-Carb Briam (Tourlou Tourlou)

Loving all things Greek after our trip to Greece last year. This is my low-carb variation of Briam or Tourlou Tourlou, which is the greek version of ratatouille.
2 medium turnips, peeled, halved and sliced
4 tomatoes, peeled and sliced
2 zucchini, sliced
1 large eggplant, sliced
1 red onion, halved and sliced
1 green pepper, halved and sliced
2 tsp minced garlic (or more depending on your taste)
A handful of chopped fresh dill
A handful of chopped fresh parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Extra virgin olive oil
Feta cheese

Layer the veggies starting and finishing with the tomato slices, adding fresh herbs, salt and pepper, garlic, between the layers. (I don’t add tomato between the layers). Drizzle generously with extra virgin olive oil and bake for about 1.5 to 2 hours at 375F until veggies are tender. About 10 minutes before ready, top with chopped feta cheese, mix together and continue baking till done. Truly simple but delicious!
You don’t have to layer this dish, you can mix it all together before baking if you prefer. I add the turnips right after the layer of tomato as the turnips take a bit longer to cook.
